JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African police fired rubber bullets on Wednesday to disperse angry demonstrators who set tires alight while protesting against what they called the unaffordable electricity prices of state utility Eskom, a Reuters witness said. The police moved in after residents barricaded streets in Johannesburg's sprawling township of Soweto with large rocks to show their grievance over a new payment system they say has sent electricity costs soaring.

Myanmar rebel leaders want greater autonomy before signing ceasefire| Reuters

YANGON (Reuters - Rebel leaders in Myanmar on Wednesday urged the government to amend the military-drafted constitution to give more autonomy to ethnic minorities, a step they said would make it easier to sign a national ceasefire agreement. In a statement released at the end of a six-day summit in Pansang on the border with China, the heads of a dozen rebel armies risen from various ethnic groups in Myanmar also called on the government to cease its military offensives against them and to create a federal system. #Business #Economy #India #Technology #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion #lifestyle
